I first began practicing yoga to help my repeitiive injury from my work as a sign language interpreter.
Years later, living in NYC and stressed out from life in theater, I returned to yoga primarily practicng gym vinyasa classes until I tore my meniscus walking down the subway months after 9/11. This is when I started Iyengar yoga. It started out as knee therapy and changed my life. But it took me awhile to commit completely. And when I did I loved the super effective time-honored method rooted in a long lineage.
Once my knee issue was resolved, I drew closer to the deeper benefits of yoga that have helped me face the curveballs of life (divorce and signifanct losses) and put me on a path of deeper connection with self and others.
In 2010, I threw caution to the wind and followed my heart to the middle of Mexico and this is when my practice went from doing yoga classes to developing a strong personal practice on and off the mat that supports me every day of my life.

She is an excellent teacher who knows the body and how to do the postures correctly! I came with a worsening back, hip and sciatic problem! Five months later I am 90% better ! Best teacher ever and she has a great sense of humor too!
I got to know my body again and slow down the aging process
I’m never bored in class because the specific focus on the body takes you on a journey and there is just so much voyaging to do!!! The mind is fully connected with the body and the body is working and activated because of it. I have met few teachers with this talent and Jen has it.”

Usha Leason, Yoga teacher and Ayurvedic Lifestyle Coach
I feel so much more expansion in my body and my mind. And I feel much more stable and aware in every part of my life. And my heart is more open. I started with back pain and after the first few weeks it was gone. Jen breaks down the poses into steps that no matter where you are you can do some part of it. I had almost given up and now I have a new perspective of my body. I didn’t think I could practice regularly. And now I am motivated to do something everyday because it feels so good.
